  2. Apparently this is the new design for the Steambox controller. Not sure if I'm a fan of the concave design (I wonder how that feels ergonomically), but it's definitely interesting. I applaud Valve's aspirations for trying to come up with a completely different control scheme.
  3. Just reminding everyone that this weekend is the Rockstar sale on Steam. I picked up some good games and also a few non-Rockstar stuff from the sales going on right now. The pickups this weekend will make my PC and Mac happy. I spent a little over $18 but got quite a few good games. Here's what I got: Grand Ages: Rome (PC) Grand Theft Auto III (Mac) Grand Theft Auto III (PC) Grand Theft Auto IV (PC) Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City (PC) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PC) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Mac) Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PC) Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (Mac) Infestation: Survivor Stories (PC) Manhunt (PC)

    Review: Jazzpunk

    Devloper: Necrophone Games Publisher: Adult Swim Games Platform: PC (Steam) Release Date: February 7, 2014 Rating: None (T suggested) I like to laugh. A lot. So much so that I've often been compared to Woody the Woodpecker, with his obnioxusly infectious giggle. Jazzpunk had me rolling in fits of Woody the Woodpecker giggles. Published by Adult Swim and coded by the genius monkeys at Necrophone Games, Jazzpunk is like a psychedelic 007 tale spun by Mel Brooks or Monty Python and painted in art-deco '50s art. It's short, sweet and jam-packed with more in-jokes and sight gags than you can shake a stick at. The general premise is that you play Polyblank, an agent for a mysterious spy agency that carries out various missions. The Director, a drunkard and possibly hallucinogenic freak, gives you Missionyl pills to enhance your reality and send you on your way. What initially begins as a caper to infiltrate a random Russian Embassy will quickly have you assassinating cowboys with blowfish and beating up Hondas in a first-person Street Fighter parody. I didn't understand any of what was going on, but that isn't the point. Jazzpunk is about embracing absurdity to its very limit. If you played Jazzpunk like a linear, objective-styled game as you're ordered to, the experience would be blindingly short. The better method is to go off the reservation and explore the various environments for fun mini-games and Easter eggs. I ran around a luxurious robot-operated beach resort and played a game of Wedding Quake (yes, it is what it sounds like), hunted for metallic plunder with a metal detector on the beach, drank shots of something lasered out of a robotic bartender's eye and squirted cheese spray on the face of an aristocrat. It's completely off-kilter and hilarious, designed to catch you off-guard at a moment's notice. Completing missions will usually return you to the agency office, housed inside an empty metro station. The more you play, the more surrealist the subway station and in-game levels get. As you might imagine, nothing is as it seems in the world of Jazzpunk. I won't spoil what few, cryptic plot details there are but you'll enjoy the way Necrophone plays with spy tropes and perverts them to amusing effect. No noir-spy plot detail is left unscrewed with. Even though I finished the game in about 2 hours, I'm absolutely certain I missed my fair share of mini-games and jokes. I apparently didn't smuggle a pigeon from one level to another, and the game happily reported I missed out on quite a few awesome-sounding minigames. Are all of the game parodies and distractions fantastic? Of course not, but their inclusion is a welcome addition. You'll get a chuckle out of Gravy Racer (a riff on Wave Racer) the first time you sail gravy dishes in a thick brown liquid pool. The visuals and audio are some of the most immediately distinctive parts of Jazzpunk. Characters and environments are wonderfully whimsical in the vein of pop-art. The musical score and sound effects are light-hearted and harken back to, as you might have guessed, jazz musical acts. It's all very trippy, but in an entertaining way. I did encounter one instance of the game locking up and crashing on me but I didn't notice any other major bugs. Whether or not you get a kick out of Jazzpunk is entirely dependent on whether or not you fall in love with the game's sense of humor. It won't jive with everyone and some may feel the $15 price tag demands too much. From what I experienced, Jazzpunk is absolutely worth the scrap and practically begs you to give it a try. It's a relatively short game that only gets better with another playthrough. A few of the jokes fall flat but, overall, the writing is consistently brilliant and maintains its sense of absurdity the whole way through, even to the insane ending. Pros: + Frequently hilarious + Great sense of style + Visuals and audio + Strong writing Cons: - One or two glitches - It ended too soon Overall Score: 9 (out of 10) Fantastic Jazzpunk is the perfect comedy caper. Give it a whirl and you might just find yourself in love. A download code was provided by the publisher for this review

Aarklash: Legacy - $8.40 Alpha Protocol - $3.75 Avadon 2: The Corruption - $2.50 Binary Domain - $3.75 Cargo Commander - $1.99 Day One: Garry's Incident - $4.00 Deponia - $4.99 Flatout Complete Pack - $9.99 Frozen Hearth - $8.99 Future Wars - $0.50 Lucius - $5.00 Post Mortem - $2.50 Savant - Ascent - $0.99 Silent Storm Gold Edition - $2.50 SteamWorld Dig - $4.99 Still Life Bundle - $3.74 STORM: Frontline Nation - $2.50 Type:Rider - $3.49 Urban Trial Freestyle - $3.74 Not sure what to buy?

Unfortunately, there are a few stinkers in the batch. At least if you get one of those it's at a highly discounted price!

    Review: Octodad: Dadliest Catch

    Developer: Young Horses Publisher: Young Horses Platform: PC (Steam) Release Date: January 30, 2014 ESRB: Rating Pending (E10+ suggested) It was 2010 when Octodad first entered my life. At the time, it was a freely downloadable game by some DePaul University students. The concept was simple: You were an octopus in a suit who had to tend to the mundane aspects of adulthood. The game was completely silly, but also a lot of fun. In 2011, developer Young Horses decided to revisit their invertebrate friend“s world and ran a Kickstarter for Octodad 2. Finally, in 2014, Octodad: Dadliest Catch has finally arrived! Was it worth the wait? That all depends on how much you adore the novelty of Octodad“s world. In Dadliest Catch, things begin much like they did in the original game. You“re just a dad with a human family who is seeking to tend to their needs. Oh, and they don“t know you“re an octopus so don“t do anything too weird. However, in this adventure you are able to leave the safety of home and experience the thrill of grocery shopping or going to an aquarium. The fun of the game is hard to convey because the real amusement comes via the controls. Every octopus has eight arms (yes, not tentacles, which are what squids have) and Octodad is no different. The only change for him is that he is capable of bipedal locomotion. I say capable because most of your experience controlling him will make motion more akin to wildly flailing limbs. The difficulty of walking and manipulating objects is created by the control scheme, which requires separate buttons for moving his left or right “legs” and another for arm control. All limbs are free to move in the 3D environment, making it very easy to fumble around. As you might expect, it“s hilarious to see Octodad sliding around while human onlookers stare. If you“ve ever played Surgeon Simulator 2013 or QWOP then you“ve probably already got an idea of how purposefully difficult controls make for funny gameplay. For most of Dadliest Catch, you can accomplish most goals by flinging arms around wildly in hopes of finishing missions. Some involve more finesse, but the difficulty is generous enough to allow for a lot of mistakes early on. Unfortunately, because of this, some players may get by without ever coming to grips with the controls. This is an issue because there are some sections that require one to be fairly good at maneuvering Octodad around. At these points, the game suddenly became tedious at best and infuriating at worst. Since one of these segments is right near the end of the game it is doubly annoying - it“s all that stands between you and finishing! Similarly, there are stealth segments included and they remove much of the fun. After all, most want to fling Octodad around rather than exercise caution. Although these moments are a bother, at least they happen rarely. For the most part, as long as you can figure out the basic concepts of Octodad“s movements it won“t provide too much trouble. Part of the reason it“s easy to forgive Dadliest Catch is because the world is very colorful and humorous. Each member of the family has their own unique personality and offers many fun quips. Even the subtitles offer an extra layer of silliness as they vaguely translate what Octodad“s burbles might mean. It seems that once you finally get into the groove of the game that it ends. The story completes its arc and all, but it serves to make you want more! According to the in-game timer, my first playthrough took a little over two hours. You can go back and play any stage again to collect hidden ties or simply try to complete it as fast as possible. Those who aren“t ”into collectibles or testing themselves won“t see much added gameplay time via these additions, though. The silver lining is Dadliest Catch has Steam Workshop support which means the community may very well make some great new stages in the future. There“s also a local co-op mode which is bound to make or break friendships. You define which player will have control of the different parts of Octodad“s body and then must work together to get him moving anywhere. As the plain single player game is hard enough, this is quite the ridiculous (but neat) addition. In general, it“s probably best to just stick with a controller to play, although keyboard and mouse control works too. Octodad: Dadliest Catch lives up to and surpasses the original game, but is not without its problems. Sometimes there is a level of control required that many players won“t have when they reach certain sections. Every once in a while, there is a mission prompt that is not as obvious as the rest are, which is odd. But still, Octodad is incredibly silly and offers a mostly entertaining few hours of play. If you“ve never played the first game then go grab the free download. Those who enjoy it will most certainly enjoy Octodad: Dadliest Catch too. Pros: + Fleshed-out characters and backstory for Octodad and the human family he lives with + Wacky control scheme leads to hilarious moments + Cute, colorful visuals match the goofy tone Cons: - Instances where you must move Octodad precisely are tough - Stealth segments aren“t fun - It would be nice to see the developer bring more stages to extend the game Overall Score: 7 (out of 10) Good Being a father is tough - especially when you“re an octopus trying to convince your human family you aren“t a creature of the ocean. Give it a shot if you want to see everyday, mundane life transformed into a ridiculous cartoon. A download code was provided by the publisher for this review

  10. Steam releases keep piling up day after day and this week was no different. Retro games saw themselves re-published on the digital storefront, while many highly anticipated indie games also launched. There's a great deal of variety this month and that's always nice to see.

  11. If you were a bit disappointed over the smaller amount of games on sale via Steam last week, well, this most recent list adds a bunch more. As per usual, there are a good deal of indie games on the list. Some of them are fairly recent which might appeal to the more discount-savvy users out there. Here are the games: A Valley Without Wind - $2.99 A Valley Without Wind 2 - $2.99 Clickr - $1.70 Lords of Football - $7.49 Genesis Rising - $1.25 Gravity Badgers - $2.49 InFlux - $3.99 Inquisitor - $3.39 Master Reboot - $7.49 Pacific Storm Pack - $3.75 Redshirt - $9.99 SpaceForce Rogue Universe - $1.25 Sparkle 2 Evo - $1.24 Velocity Ultra - $4.99 Zombie Driver HD - $2.49 Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge - $5.99 If you're looking for suggestions, I'd say Velocity Ultra is a great deal. Redshirt is an unusual, but fun sci-fi title but some will likely still suggest the price is too high. Have you played any of these?

  12. The year started off pretty slowly but releases on Steam are quickly picking up. A handful of new games were pushed onto the storefront alongside some existing properties and overall it's a pretty indie-focused bunch. There were also a few pieces of non-gaming software submitted, but those won't be listed here. Here are the (non-Early Access) titles that came out this week on Steam: A-Men - $11.99 "A-Men is a puzzle platformer with a very specific and slightly oldschool vibe.

Hyper Fighters - $8.99 "Hyper Fighters brings back the rail shooter as you know it from the arcade: fast, explosive, addictive, and easy to learn: but so hard to beat the number one highscore!

    Every week Steam posts deals that will be available for an entire week. Unless a huge sale is incoming, they also always get posted on Monday morning.

    Humble Weekly Sale: Bohemia Interactive

    Looking for some games to play over the weekend? Perhaps the latest Humble Weekly Sale will offer you something worthwhile (if you don't already own half the games). This week the focus is all on Bohemia Interactive. They're best known for the ARMA series, although there are other games in this collection too. Spend a buck for this set of titles: Alpha Prime ARMA: Gold Edition ARMA Tactics ARMA II Take on Helicopters UFO: Afterlight As usual, there is a second batch of games that unlock by beating the average: ARMA II: DayZ Mod ARMA II: Operation Arrowhead Carrier Command: Gaea Mission It's worth pointing out that the DayZ Mod means it actually is the mod that requires ARMA II and Operation Arrowhead to run. It's not the standalone version that recently cropped up on Steam! The mod itself has been free but, hey, why not include it here too? In any case, the sale will be up until next Thursday when a new company gets to take the spotlight.

    Steam Weeklong Deals for January 13-20

    We might be in the middle of January, but this week's Steam deals seem to have a very horror-style vibe, or maybe that's just me. If you're looking for some games to buy then perhaps one of these will scratch that itch. Or, if not, there's always a handful of bundles going around to choose from. Here are the week's discounts: Arena Wars 2 - $0.99 Bad Rats: the Rats' Revenge - $0.49 The Book of Unwritten Tales Collection - $9.99 Deep Black: Reloaded - $7.49 Full Mojo Rampage - $9.99 Iesabel - $3.74 Jane's Advanced Strike Fighters - $2.00 Naval Warfare - $0.99 Pool Nation - $2.99 Razor2: Hidden Skies - $2.49 Survivor Squad - $4.49 Trapped Dead - $2.50 Turba - $1.50 Zombie Pirates - $3.74 There are at least a handful of worthy titles here if you simply need to spend some money. Just remember, friends don't let friends buy Bad Rats!
  16. Maybe this is just opinion, but it seems that the past few Humble Bundles have been a bit too predictable. That's not to say they were bad by any means, just that there could have been spicier lineups. With today's Humble Indie Bundle X launch, it seems they might be back in the game. Spend at least a dollar to get these games: Joe Danger 2: The Movie Papo & Yo Runner2 To the Moon The average, which is currently $6.14, is what you need to pay to unlock the following: Reus Surgeon Simulator 2013 Each game in the bundle works on Windows, Mac, and Linux. They also have accompanying Steam keys which is just what many PC gamers desire these days. The bundle has just begun and usually Humble adds more games as time passes, so keep an eye out. Just be aware that any additional games are grated to those who buy the higher priced tier, not the $1 one.

    On Steam This Week: Continue, Driftmoon, Unearthed

    Thanks to the Steam Holiday Sale, very few games were willing to have a PC launch over the past few weeks. Now that the sale has ended and the gaming world is returning to normal, a few publishers have decided to bring their titles to the forefront. Of course, there's only a few this week. Continue?9876543210 - $7.99 "You are a dead, failed video game character wandering through the recesses of the Random Access Memory, trying to find peace in the final moments of your existence before being deleted forever... ...but forget that.

Driftmoon - $10.49 "The beautiful, enchanted world of Driftmoon trembles in the shadow of a forgotten evil, for the dark King Ixal is again gathering his forces.

Gunman Clive - $1.99 "In the year of 18XX, the west is overrun by thugs and outlaws. A group of bandits have kidnapped Mayor Johnsons daughter and are spreading havok across the land.

Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta - Episode 1 - Gold Edition - $3.99 "When fortune hunter Faris Jawad and his sister Dania receive a call to visit Morocco they embark on an exotic adventure throughout the middle east on the trail of the famous Muslim explorer Ibn Battuta." Currently, every single one of these games is on discount. For the most part, they're pretty cheap! Aside from Continue?, each title also was available previously and have just finally made the jump to Steam (thanks in large part to Greenlight). We should see Steam releases resume their massive output in the coming weeks.
